be to say if you invest overseas you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes but of course if you're a small business or a mom and pop business or a big business starting up here, you've got to pay even the reduced rate governor romney's talking about and it's estimated that will create 800,000 new jobs. the problem is they'll be in china or india or germany. that's not the way we are going create jobs here. the way we're going to create jobs here is not just to change our tax code but also to double our exports and we are on pace to double our exports, one of the commitments i made when i was president, that's creating tens of thousands of jobs all across the country. that's why we've kept on pushing trade deals but trade deals that make sure american workers and american businesses are getting a good deal. talked aboutey china as i already indicated. the private sector, governor romney's company invested in what were called pioneers of outsourcing. that's not my phrase. that's what reporters called it. and as far as currency manipulation, the currency's gone up 11% since

campaign talks a lot about no apologies. should the u.s. have apologized for americans burning korans in afghanistan? should the u.s. apologize for americans urinating on taliban corpses? >> what we should not be apologizing for are standing up for our values. what we should not be doing is saying to the egyptian people, mubarak is cracking down on them, that he is a good guy. and the next day, saying he ought to go. we should not be rejecting claims for more security. we need more marines in benghazi. there were requests for extra security, those requests were not honored. this was the anniversary of 9/11. it was libya, a country we knew we had al qaeda there. al qaeda and its affiliates are on the rise in northern africa. we did not give our ambassador in benghazi a marine detachment. we should not apologize for our values. look at all the various issues out there. the vice president talks about sanctions in iran. >> i would like to move to iran. there is really no bigger national security issue in this country. both president obama and governor romney said it will prevent iran from

sales and manufacturers in the u.s. can't compete. china has been a currency manipulator for years and years and years and the president has a regular opportunity to label them as a currency manipulator but refuses to do so. on day one, i will label china a currency manipulator which will allow me as president to be able to put in place if necessary tariffs where i believe they are taking unfair advantage of our manufacturers so we're going to make sure that people we trade with around the world play by the rules but let me not just stop there. don't forget, what's key to bringing jobs back here is not just finding someone else to punish -- and i'm going to be strict with people whom we trade with to make sure they follow the law and play by the rules -- but it's also to make america the most attractive place in the world for businesses of all kinds. that's why i want to bring down the tax rates on small employers, big employers, so they want to be here. canada's tax rate on companies is now 15%. ours is 35% so if you're starting a business, where would you rather start it? we have

about the size of the u.s. navy in foreign-policy carried here is part of the exchange. >> first of all, the sequestered is not something i propose. it is something congress has proposed. it will not happen. the budget we are talking about is not reducing our military spending. is maintaining it. i think governor romney may be had not spent enough time looking at how our military works for you mentioned the navy. and that we had fewer ships them we did in 1916. we also have fewer horses and bayonets. the nature of our military change. we have these things called aircraft carriers were planes land on them. chips that go under water. nuclear submarines. so the question is not a game of battleship where we are counting ships, it is what are our capabilities. so when i sit down with the secretary of the navy and the joint chiefs of staff, we determine how are we going to be best able to meet all our defense needs in a way that also keeps with our troops and make sure our veterans have the support they need when they come home. that is not reflected in the kind of budget you are putting forw

that he has made conditions more favorable for u.s. exporters when he has done that by destroying the value of the dollar is really offensive to me as an undecided voter. host: who are you going to vote for? caller: i am still not sure. i have not figured this one out yet. host: margaret joining us from alabama, a supporter of the president. caller: i think the president obama did an exceptional job on this debate. he is very concerned about the veterans and the people of the united states. he has a strong voice for us. it is what the people are wanting him to do and he has done a great job. mr. romney seems to be sending out potshots and trying to bad mouth the president instead of concentrating on the issues and doing what is best for the nation. host: a lot of snapshot polls on who won and who lost the debate, including this from cnn. sam feist tweeted this -- melissa is on the phone from houston. good evening. caller: i want to make a comment about president obama and the fact that he did keep a campaign promise. that promise was that change would take place. however, he did n

. the president pointed out that production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up but not due to his policies -- in spite of his policies. all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. if i am president, i will double them. i will get the oil from offshore and alaska. i like coal. people in the coal industry feel like it is getting crushed by your policies. i want to get america and north american energy independence so we can create jobs. i am not looking to cut massive taxes and reduce the revenues going into the government. my number one principle is that there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i want to reduce the burden being paid by middle-income americans. i cannot reduce the burden paid by high-income americans. any language of the contrary is not accurate. >> let's talk about taxes. it is instructive. four years ago when i stood on the stage, i said that i would cut taxes for middle-class families. that is what i di
